It is a stomach churning, heart wrenching read that both forced me to continue and made me want to close the book and walk away as it yanked me from my comfort zone with the speed of a bullet train and forced this world down my throat with the same cruelty as the men in this story forced themselves into the throats of these women.
How do I feel? Quite honestly I have to say thank you to the author for offering me this experience.
It's not preachy, so don't worry about that. I think the author did his homework and skilfully fictionalized fact. His characters are compelling and interesting with depth that makes them believable and downright frightening at times. They do unspeakable things for the greater good, grow and mature throughout the story, make good choices and bad choices and while things turn out fine for some, they don't fare quite so well for others.
Remove the blinders people! If you want to see a darker side of the world we live in, this is a must for your library.
I received this complimentary copy for my honest review.
